Cheese and Port is lovely, but I think I'll stick to a bit of flapjack and some green tea , just can't run completely fuel free! Some great miles in there Phil and good reps Dean! Bus...please don't mention PH, still having nightmares about that place!!
10 x 800 tonight, managed 4 at 2.29, 5 at 2.28 and the last one 2.25, absolutely bolloxed at the end. I think it was 80 secs recovery. Well happy with that, more happy with feeling totally niggle free on my left side, hopefully those Mo and Rupp conditioning exercises are helping!
Dachs - yes, Nationals was horrible..apparenatly the intercounties has a different course this year, hopefully getting rid of the long drag. Weather possibly might be getting colder, which could mean drier hopefully..
Luton tonight, back on the track again..wonder what Simmons has in store for us..
I could loan out my neurotic 7 year-old female German Shepherd, who used to love accompanying me, when I ran a few years back.
We'd leave the house well armed. I'd have my iPhone secured to my forearm in its protective cover, while she would emerge wearing full head gear (muzzle & nose-guard), in addition to a couple of poop bags tied to her collar.
As much as she's a loving family pet, due to the protective nature of her breed, she's never had very little time for strangers, briefly demonstrated by her behaviour, before she's placed into check.
Thankfully, a simple tug of the lead is sufficient to break the chain of her unsociable behaviour, helping to quickly re-focus her attention upon placing one paw in front of the other.
Thus far, I've not yet told her that my wife and I have successfully entered into this year's GNR through the ballot, meaning that walkies are soon to become a lot more exciting, something I'm sure she'll be ecstatic over, as she'll soon be re-acquainted with her once retired running lead.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that if you're seen running with a German Shepherd, due to their reputation and the field of work in which they're regularly employed, very few people will feel inclined to mess with you and your dog.
Hmm..Yes the claw marks from when I was attacked by a German Shepherd dog a few weeks ago are just starting to fade. The owner said he had already had a go at someone else a few weeks back. Said I would report it again if it wasn't muzzled and on a lead..glad my wife and 4 year old weren't with me at the time...
Dean - yes not nice at all, it might as well been a cross trainer machine competion, it certainly wasn't running! Yes, Greenwood is a beast and just keeps getting better and better, well in the last 2-3 years that I have known him and I was a distant 2nd V40 overall to him in the Surrey XC league this year too. I had a quick couple of words with him and Phil (hi mate ) in the pub after. (Good luck at Bath)
Can't wait for the XC season to finish to be honest. Got the intercounties to go and then I can throw my spikes away - they have done their 2 years!
One of life's joys is toothache going away. I have a bit of a grey tooth as I stupidly openend a bottle of beer with my teeth whilst working as a stupid campsite courier in France, 95.
I don't think people appreciate what feeling well is, I really feel for folk with chronic back pain, it must be a nightmare.
As an aside - I saw off a tweet a link to the Oregon project core and stability stuff (used by Mo and Rupp) and so thought I would get an advantage on my rivals by doing them. And low and behold they are now on the bloody RW website. Typical ...
